Student fight leads to arrest

The following events occurred on Feb. 22 but were not reported to Cuero Police Department until Feb. 27 at approximately 12:30 a.m. by a nurse at University Hospital in San Antonio.

Two male students got into argument at Cuero High School on Feb. 21 during class over one student (15-years-old) who did not want the other student (17-years-old) sitting near him in class. The two argued and threw each other’s backpacks around. The 15-year-old discovered on the following day, Feb. 22, the 17-year-old trashed his back pack (which he left in the classroom when he stormed out on Feb. 21). Both students agreed to meet at the 17-year-old’s residence to “fight it out.” When that occurred, the 15-year-old lost the fight and left. There were three witnesses to the fight – all juveniles.

This weekend we’re doing two shows -- one tonite and one tomorrow night. They start picking up, sometimes we’ll be out for a week, sometimes two weeks,” he said.

Cuero ISD board of trustees names finalist for superintendent

The Cuero Independent School District (ISD) Board of Trustees, at its Feb. 23 meeting, named Dr. Micah Dyer, of Lovelady ISD, as finalist for superintendent. By law, the Board must now wait 21 days before voting to hire Dyer. Dyer is slated to replace Interim Superintendent Dr. Ben Colwell.

The Board has followed a lengthy process in determining the finalist. In November, the Board hired Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) Executive Search Services to direct the search. TASB consultants surveyed staff and community groups to determine desired characteristics of the new superintendent. The profile developed from the surveys was the yardstick used by the Board and consultants in evaluating the applicants for the position.

The Board selected six applicants for initial interviews. Three applicants were invited back for a second interview. The Board is scheduled to vote to offer a contract to Dyer at its regular monthly board meeting later in March.

Yorktown Stock Show, Sale draws good crowd, buyers

Beautiful skies and warmer weather prevailed over the 78th annual Yorktown FFA Stock Show and sale held Friday and Saturday, February 17 and 18, at the Yorktown show barn. The event culminated with total sales of $148.814.04 following the auction on Saturday afternoon.

Auctioneer Joe Adams kept things lively at the sale by picking on his favorite side-kick, Leroy Ruppert, who has been a long-term supporter of the Yorktown FFA.

This year was Ruppert’s 74th Yorktown FFA Stock Show. And while he normally worked the gate in past years, this year Ruppert was side-lined due to a foot problem. But that didn’t keep Ruppert from the show -- or the gate -- for that matter. He was perched comfortably in a big office chair right next to it, sock on his foot, hat on his head and big smile on his face.
